Image Competition 2024

The IOM3 Image Competition is back this year, where students and early career members can flex their creative arm and showcase their artistic skills.

The theme for the 2024 Image Competition is 'Materials, Minerals & Mining in... a Sustainable Future'.

Entries will be invited in three categories (materials, minerals and mining) and participants may submit only one entry per category. The deadline to enter the competition is 17 May at 23:59 BST.

The competition is open to IOM3 student and early career members only, which is defined as someone who is, as of 1 September 2024 (allowing for career breaks, eg parental leave) within 10 years of the start of their first employment (or self-employment) in a materials, minerals or mining related role, or within 6 years of completing their PhD in a relevant subject, whichever is sooner.

The images should have the following dimensions:

  • Minimum height: 297mm
  • Minimum width: 210mm
  • High resolution (300dpi)

Please note that the work submitted must not have previously been entered or placed in any other competition.

A panel of judges comprising members of the IOM3 Student & Early Career Committee, and the IOM3 Communications, Editorial and Content teams will assess entries for each category. The winners will be invited to attend and showcase their entries at the SEC Art Lecture in June 2024.
